Looking for a marriage !!
« on: Saturday 09 January 16 20:51 GMT (UK) »
Searching for a marriage of Katharine McKay Ramage to James Taylor, more than likely in Sanquhar or Wanlockhead circa early 1800's, first child born we think, about 1813, a boy William Taylor m Margaret McLeod.   Any assistance with this Taylor family would be much appreciated from Scottish records - searched Ancestry and no marriage suitable found !  TIA

Sorry, nothing in Scotland for a marriage of this couple nor a birth of a William (Taylor/Ramage) including spelling variants in Dumfries.  The only birth that could be a possibility occurred in Dalry Ayr in 1815 son of James no mother listed.

I take it this is the family at Wanlockhead in 1841:

William Taylor, "25", lead miner
Margaret, "35"
Charles, 9
Janet, 7
James, 3
Catherine, 1
All born in the county

What was the occupation of William's father? Have you found his parents on the 1841 census? There is always the possibility that William was actually born outside the county, but moved there so young that he did not realise or had forgotten.

I have a family bible in the name of Charles Ramage. There are a number of entries written in it it records a marriage of William Taylor and Margaret McLeod on 11th Feb 1831.  There are several births noted after that date. It matches the 1841 and 1851 census. Hope this is a help

Hi Marjie

I have no connection to this family, but I just noticed this was your first post on RootsChat. Welcome!

That is some amazing information you have for howesd. I really hope they get to see your message, however I see they were last active on the website in February 2016. I'm going to send them a Private Message about your news, and hope it helps get you in touch with each other.
You won't be able to send private messages yet, I believe you'd need to make at least 3 public messages before you're allowed to pm.
